I did carbon SMG Paddle install....unfortunately had to take out the airbag in order to get things lined up properly!....end result, well worth it! I'm still only a few weeks into owning an E46 M so the little things get me excited

Dropped off my car to get the broken M3 rep bumper replaced and get all the door dings and blemishes repaired from the previous owner. Finally got tired of looking at all the dings. Cost: a whopping $300!!

Dropped it off at the body shop to get my bumper fixed..

My rental is a dodge caliber.. seriously the biggest piece of **** I've ever driven.. forward visibility is for **** the dash is so big for some reason and the steering wheel wasn't designed to fit human hands

My Ride: S54 325i
Just picked up these 17x8 BBS RKs with Blizzaks. I'll be pulling the Blizzaks off they'll be used on my style 44s. The RKs are going to be my new summer wheels..I've got some wide nittos to throw on them for spring

Today I bought shadow shiny black 325i emblems, bought all new black roundels all around the car, matte black kidneys, smoked corners, and smoked side markers. Only thing I have a question about is how I will be able to replace my blue roundel on the steering wheel to change it to the black one.

My Ride: 323i e46 SOLD!
Gave her a well needed bath, just couldn't stand looking at her so nasty. Today was the first day I drove her in 10 days, never knew how much I really missed her until I drove to work this morning. Waiting on my new carbon fiber roundels to come in the mail, hopefully that'll be tomorrow. I will also do a good detail tomorrow in the day light while I enjoy our 70 degree weather. Wanna head over to the dealership to pickup a touchup pen but it all depends on if I have the time.
